About the Finance Department

The Finance Department is composed of six divisions: Accounting, Administration, Budget, City Clerk, City Treasurer, Information Services and Purchasing. We strive to provide services to internal customers through support of both the City and County for information technology and purchasing. In addition, we seek to provide consistent, reliable and timely information in regards to City finances.

The Mission of the Finance Department
